Hello all. Have a quick question after this weekend. Took my boat out on saturday and boat ran great but at the end of the day when I put the boat on the trailer I noticed the hand hole cover had been split in two. Got a good idea its related to pressure but my question is what is the ideal pressure to be running?
Little bout the boat setup:
472 BBF with berkeley JG-12 pump. A aluminum impellor. Stock loader grate. I believe the shoe is a 1/2 " thick but I need to check. Ive been out about five times this year with no problems and nothing fancy as far as the setup so Im just curious what could have caused it. The water was not rough at all that day so I doubt I hit a pocket. Maybe could have been a small crack in the cover and it finally gave way??
Anyways I'd like to tap the pump and put a pressure gauge on there just to see what kind of pressure it is running. What do ya'll suggest pressure wise?
